11:29 EDTSKX, DECK, UA, NKEDeckers Outdoor climbs higher after Q1 results, increased FY outlook
Shares of footwear company Deckers Outdoor (DECK) are climbing higher after the company reported first quarter earnings per share and revenue that exceeded analysts' consensus along with an increased FY15 EPS and revenue outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Deckers said its Q1 loss per share was $1.07, which was better than analysts' consensus of a $1.28 per share loss. Revenue for the quarter was $211.5M, exceeding analysts' consensus estimates of $192.01M. The company's direct-to-consumer comparable sales were up 10% in Q1 and UGG brand net sales for the quarter were up 22.8% to $123.3M. Teva brand net sales in Q1 were up 25.7% to $39.3M and its Sanuk brand net sales were up 19.6% to $36M. Deckers' Q1 combined net sales of the company's other brands increased 54.5% to $12.9M. Sales for the global retail store business increased 29.4% to $42M. Looking ahead, Deckers now expects fiscal year 2015 EPS to increase approximately 14.5% from previous guidance of up 13.5% and expects FY15 revenues to increase about 14%, up from the previous guidance of 13%. The consensus estimate for EPS and revenue are $4.69 and $1.8B, respectively. Deckers now expects FY15 UGG brand revenues to increase approximately 12% over the prior year from the previous guidance of 11% and predicts FY15 Teva brand revenues will increase approximately 11% over the prior year. The company expects FY15 Sanuk brand revenues to increase approximately 15% compared to the prior year. Combined FY15 net sales of the company's other brands are expected to be approximately $82M. The company's guidance assumes a gross profit margin of approximately 49%, an operating margin of approximately 13%. and an effective tax rate of about 29%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The company expects second quarter EPS of approximately 98c against analysts' estimates of $1.13 and sees revenues for the quarter up about 18% from the year ago period against estimates of $441.17M. ANALYST REACTION: Jefferies analyst Randal Konlk upgraded Deckers to Buy from Hold after the firm said it has more conviction of the company's margin expansion potential in FY15. The analyst believes that the company's market undervaluing the sequential upward potential at the moment from new product reveals could contribute an incremental $150M-$250M in revenue over the next 1-2 years. The firm increased its price target for Deckers to $130 from $78. ISI Group, which raised its price target on shares to $105 from $95, believes Deckers investments are beginning to drive more consistent sales results and driving it into a lifestyle brand. Citigroup also raised its price target on Deckers, to $105 from $94, following the better than anticipated Q1 results and guidance. PRICE ACTION: During late-morning trading, shares of Deckers were up $5.60 or 6.57%, to $90.84. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other running shoe makers include Nike (NKE), Under Armour (UA) and Skechers (SKX).
